Melbourne Speech Pathology are paediatric specialists (toddlers to 18 years) We specialise in all facets of paediatric and adolescents communication difficulties including speech (articulation), language, fluency, social interaction and literacy. Melbourne Speech Pathology provides therapy in the clients home, school, kindergarten or early learning centre. Home visits result in more positive relationships with children and their families as well as a better understanding of the child in a known environment (also easier for the parents!)
School visits aide in building a link between language and literacy work and the curriculum. Communication between teachers and the Speech Pathologist result in a holistic approach to manage the child’s difficulties as well as professional development.
